The Goatman is a hominid
cryptid most commonly associated with Louisiana,
Maryland and Texas. It is described as a hybrid
creature; part man and part goat. Some claim
it is a relative of the New Orleans evil cupacabra like cryptid
the Grunch. The urban legends of them often
tells of it killing young lusting couples
in parked cars or scouring neighborhoods killing
family pets. There are also tales of them breaking into peoples houses and usually the raping of it's victims. And many attest from the areas that he haunts, it does not matter if your a man or woman he will overtake you and have sex with you none the less.
The real Goatman (Goat Man Of Texas) Legend and more as told By Lisa Lee Harp Waugh.
"The Goatman beast of Marshall and Denton, Texas
has a undying want for for sex." "It does not
discriminate against just having it's way
with man or woman or beast." "And often all are said to be equal
prey as far as it is concerned." "Many liken
the creature to being a 7- 9 foot tall Pan or devil like creature with red eyes and bluish skin." "With the body of a human being, and the horns and head of a
goat." Says Lisa Lee Harp Waugh. " I with the late Kerry von Erich hunted for many a night in the summers of my youth."
"In Australia there is a story of a Goatman that tends to help individuals in distress. He leads those lost in the desert to water." Said Waugh, "Some Goatman Mysteries revolve around the infamous tales of goatman Bridge in the States, but in other countries there is a Goatman Well, hill, And the most haunted Goatman location in the world the Banks of Lock Ness." Many believe the Goatman of Loch Ness is a disturbing demonic creature that the great beast Aliester Crowley let loose in one of his Black Magick Spells that he prefomed at Boleskines." "The Boleskines Devil goatman is often called the red eyed or green eyed ghost of the loch."
In the late 1800's Denton, Texas was quite small and Arglye (where the actual haunted cursed goatman's bridge is actually located) was all but non existent at the time. There was a man named Jack "Goat Man" Kendall that lived out that way who owned several flocks of large black orange red and green eyed goats. Through the sale of Goat meat, cheese milk hides and hooves and horns he made a humble living.
Many of the merchants in Denton, Marshall, Henderson and as far as Galveston and also Shreveport, Louisiana thought this old man to be very strange and often he was the topic of conversation as far as New Orleans.
This Jack "The "Goat Man" was a private person, only because no one wanted to know his private affairs only for the fear that what he did in the hot fields was actually perverse and not Christian. Many believed that not only did his sexual involvement with his many goats produce strange half human offspring's but that he was in league with the works of the devil.
Jack dressed in clothes made of entirely from goatskins. his shoes his hat all made from the leftovers of his slaughtered flocks. They say you knew when he was around because his stench was so strong and overpowering that it would make those with the strongest of stomachs gag out right to his face. And they say his goats did not smell any better.
No one knew much about him from where he came or how he spent his days. They could only surmise that his flocks were his main chore. He also had a special goat that stayed by his side. She was a goat he called Delilah.
Many of the people in Denton, Marshall, Henderson, Tyler and Galveston knew that his wife Myrtle Mary died mysteriously. They will tell you her body was found one day close to the train tracks near Marshall. Many who saw her they say the look on her face was so wild with fright. And that she wa dressed in a multi colored fur Goatskin outfit from head to toe. They the citizens of Marshall being god fearing souls,buried her on a Friday. And when someone went to her grave in the old Marshall Texas cemetery, it looked like she had dug herself out. But that's another tale for later. ALSO PLEASE SEE: THE HAUNTED TROLL BRIDGE OF MARSHALL, TEXAS "And The Ghost Of Myrtle Mary The Goatwoman"
Some believe that one day on the Fourth of July a few of the men in Denton got drunk and started riding around the area. They found Old Jack herding his goats late at night and drove the old man and his goats off the bridge. Others believe he found them stealing his goats or possible even having sex with his prized goat Delilah. But as the rest of the sorted story goes he told them to get off is land. The processed to beat him mercifully cutting his throat and the head off of his beloved Delilah and they threw him bleeding and his goats head into the dark waters of the creek.
When the sheriff's of Denton and Marshall found out about this he investigated and could no longer find the old man or a single hair nor sign of his great flock of over 500 plus goats.
Weeks later after an event in the city a family was crossing the bridge in their wagon and could hear odd noises from underneath the bridge.
After they crossed the bridge they smelled a foul death stench that made them cover their faces. The horrid great smell was like some huge wild animal had died and the smell of sulfur and urine. When supposedly they turned and looked back and saw a wild beast man 9 foot tall goatman thing with devil red frey eyes staring at them, holding the head of Jacks favorite goat and in the other the lifeless body of old Jack himself.
Many believe that the Goatman creature is actually the child or offspring from Jacks sexual unions with his goats. and many believe he fathered hundreds of the creatures and they went on to father even more that are said to haunt the woods and swamps from Marshall and as Far as the swamps of New Orleans.
Now as of today the stories are that you can hear the sound of hooves on the bridge and splashes in the water and some people say they saw the man but his head was a goats head. Many often tell of the terrible stench when the goatman or thing is near. They say it smells like a culmination of rancid flesh, urine, sulphur and an odor similar to a fertilizer plant.
I've been to this what many call The Goatman Bridge many times in my life, But to this day I have only smelled him approaching and decided not to stick around to see if he was real.
I must warn you and tell everyone that the old bridge is very dangerous at night and I have heard the splashes and heard weird sounds while standing on the bridge. One night Kerry Von Erich myself and several of our ghost hunting friends set out to see if we could meet the demon Goatman eye to eye. but when this great smelling evil stench filled the air we decided to leave in hurry. We were all only in our early teens and i guess the fear that we had come across something really supernatural made us panic and run.
WARNING: Do NOT By any means try to Investigate This Very Haunted Bridge Alone At Night.
Others across the United States have describe it as being a cross
between the two a mutant form to a large degree.
It is likely that the demonized images of
the incubus and even the horns and cloven
hooves of Satan, as depicted in much medieval
and post-medieval Christian literature and
art, were taken from the images of Pan.
Often known or called Satyrs (or Fauns) in
Cryptozoology, the Goatman of Maryland is
today associated with Governor’s Bridge
Road, Lottsford Road and Fletchertown Road,
in Prince George's County, and with the nearby
Glenn Dale Hospital, the former site of a
state tuberculosis sanatorium. It is reported
to have attacked a number of witnesses and
to have damaged property.
In Greek mythology, satyrs (in Greek, Sátyroi)
are a troop of male companions of Pan and
Dionysus— "satyresses" were
a late invention of poets— that roamed
the woods and mountains. In mythology they
are often associated with sex drive and vase-painters
often portrayed them with large strong throbbing
Pan is the Greek god of shepherds and flocks,
of mountain wilds, hunting and rustic music:
paein means to pasture. He has the hindquarters,
legs, and horns of a goat, in the same manner
as a faun or satyr. He is recognized as the
god of fields, groves, and wooded glens; because
of this, Pan is connected to fertility and
season of spring. Pan is famous for his sexual
powers, and is often depicted with an erect
huge phallus. Diogenes of Sinope, speaking
in jest, related the myth of Pan learning
masturbation from his father, Hermes, and
teaching the habit to his beloved shepherds.
He was believed by the Greeks to have plied
his charms primarily on maidens and shepherds,
such as Daphnis. Though he failed with Syrinx
and Pitys, Pan didn't fail with the Maenads—he
had every one of them, in one orgiastic riot
or another. To effect this, Pan was sometimes
multiplied into a whole tribe of Panes.
Pan's greatest conquest was that of the moon
goddess Selene. He accomplished this by wrapping
himself in a sheepskin to hide his hairy black
goat form, and drew her down from the sky
into the forest where he seduced her.
Pan's ancient Roman equivalent was Faunus,
and they were both Horned God deities. For
this reason he is popular among many Neopagans
and occultic groups.
In the 17th century, the satyr legend came
to be associated with stories of the orangutan,
a great ape now found only in Sumatra and
Borneo. Many early accounts which apparently
refer to this animal describe the males as
being sexually aggressive towards human women
and towards females of its own species. The
first scientific name given to this ape was
The glaistig is a creature from Scottish
mythology. In most stories, the creature,
is described as a beautiful woman with dusky
or gray skin and long blonde hair. Her lower
half was that of a goat, usually disguised
by a long, flowing green robe or dress.
According to legends, the glaistig could
serve in legend as both a malign and benign
creature. Some stories have her luring men
to her lair via either song or dance, where
she would then drink their blood. Other such
tales have her casting stones in the path
of travelers or throwing them off course.
In other, more benign incarnations, the glaistig
is a protector of cattle and herders, and
in at least one legend in Scotland, the town
of Ach-na-Creige had such a spirit protecting
the cattle herds. The townsfolk, in gratitude,
poured milk from the cows into a hollowed-out
stone for her to drink. According to the same
legend, her protection was revoked after one
local youth poured boiling milk into the stone,
burning her. She has also been described in
some folklore as watching over children while
their mothers milked the cows and fathers
watched over the herds.
Another rendition of the glaistig legend
is that the glaistig was once a mortal noblewoman,
to whom a "fairy" nature had been
given or who was cursed with the goat's legs
and immortality, and since has been known
as "The Green Lady". In this incarnation,
she seems to be more benign, and watches over
houses and also looks after those of weak
mind as well. Such Green Lady myths have been
associated with a number of locations in Scotland,
including Ardnacaillich, Donolly Castle, Loch
Fyne, Crathes Castle and in Wales at Caerphilly.
A similar tale has also been told of Henniker,
A third tale synthesizes the two threads.
It tells of a mortal woman who lived on an
island near the Firth of Clyde and who was
smitten by the fairies and was granted her
unspoken wish to become one of them. Afterwards,
she dedicated herself to watching over the
cattle of the island until a farmer offended
her greatly through rude treatment and she
left, making her way to the mainland by leaping
to nearby islets before snagging her hoof
in the rigging of a passing ship. She, according
to this tale, fell into the ocean and presumably
drowned, or at any rate was never seen again.
The glaistig ("Glashtig") was a
Scottish mythical creature or hag.
It came in two forms, namely, firstly a kind
of satyr, a supposed she-hag or hag in the
shape of a goat, secondly, a kind of beautiful
female fairy, identical with the bean-nighe,
usually attired in a green robe, seldom seen
except at the bank of a stream, and engaged
in washing, also known as maighdean uaine
(green maiden). "Green" anciently
portended death, and many families had a green
ghost attached to them, such as Menie House
The name is evidently cognate with the Manx
"glashtin", and is similar to the
"sacbaun" of Galloway.
In Roman mythology, fauns are place-spirits
(genii) of untamed woodland. Romans connected
their fauns with the Greek satyrs, wild and
orgiastic drunken followers of Bacchus (Greek
Dionysus). However, fauns and satyrs were
originally quite different creatures. Both
have horns and both resemble goats below the
waist, humans above; but originally satyrs
had human feet, fauns goatlike hooves. The
Romans also had a god named Faunus and goddess
Fauna, who, like the fauns, were goat-people.
The Barberini Faun (Glyptothek, Munich, Germany)
is a Hellenistic marble, c. 200 BCE (Before
Common Era) that was found in the Mausoleum
of the Emperor Hadrian (the Castel Sant'Angelo)
and installed at Palazzo Barberini by Cardinal
Maffeo Barberini (later Pope Urban VIII),
the patron of Bernini, who heavily restored
and refinished it, so that its present 'Hellenistic
baroque' aspect may be enhanced.

A modern account of several purported meetings
with Pan is given by R. Ogilvie Crombie (born
Edinburgh, lived 1899-1975), in the books
"The Findhorn Garden" (Harper &
Row, 1975) and "The Magic Of Findhorn"
(Harper & Row, 1975). Crombie claimed
to have met Pan many times at various locations
including Edinburgh, on the island of Iona
and at the Findhorn Foundation, all in Scotland.
Real Goat Man” In America
Reports of the Goatman legend
began in Louisiana in the early 1800's and
in other parts of America sometimes. From
there, sightings spread to other states; with
reports of the Goatman being made as far south
as Texas in the 1960s, Washington and California
during the 1980s, and as far north as Ontario,
Canada and Cannelton, Indiana during the 1990s.
Others tell that around the 1950's, sightings
occurred in Upper Marlboro and Forestville,
Prince George's County, Maryland. Over the
years sightings have now been reported in
Alabama, Arkansas, California, Florida, Kentucky,
Louisiana, Michigan, Mississippi, Oklahoma,
Oregon, Washington, and Wisconsin.The largest,
frequent and most frightening majority of
this strange cryptid sightings has been always
associated with the southern parts of the
United States. Sightings are numerous through
out the United States and often noted in the
months of October - May.
Since the 1970s, the Goatman has become the
subject of a number of popular urban myths
in the deep south. Myths vary, but the Goatman
preying on courting couples, or attacking
cars parked at the side of the road, are both
common themes. Florida sightings are sometimes
a little more strange and actual rape by the
creature is reported from male and female
Urban myths often put secret genetics programs
forward as a possible source of the Goatman.
Experiments by the federal government and
the Beltsville Agricultural Research Center,
Maryland, have both been suggested as possible
Goatman origins. Many tales tell of a strange
old man that had sex with his pack of goats
and produced the cryptid from this union originally.
The 19th century image of
Baphomet, created by Eliphas Lévi.
The arms bear the Latin words SOLVE (dissolve)
and COAGULA (congeal).
The goat on the frontispiece
carries the sign of the pentagram on the forehead,
with one point at the top, a symbol of light,
his two hands forming the sign of hermetism,
the one pointing up to the white moon of Chesed,
the other pointing down to the black one of
Geburah. This sign expresses the perfect harmony
of mercy with justice. His one arm is female,
the other male like the ones of the androgyn
of Khunrath, the attributes of which we had
to unite with those of our goat because he
is one and the same symbol. The flame of intelligence
shining between his horns is the magic light
of the universal balance, the image of the
soul elevated above matter, as the flame,
whilst being tied to matter, shines above
it. The beast's head expresses the horror
of the sinner, whose materially acting, solely
responsible part has to bear the punishment
exclusively; because the soul is insensitive
according to its nature and can only suffer
when it materializes. The rod standing instead
of genitals symbolizes eternal life, the body
covered with scales the water, the semi-circle
above it the atmosphere, the feathers following
above the volatile. Humanity is represented
by the two breasts and the androgyn arms of
this sphinx of the occult sciences."
Levi called his image “the Baphomet
of Mendes”, presumably following Herodotus'
account that the god of Mendes — the
Greek name for Djedet, Egypt — was depicted
with a goat's face and legs. Herodotus relates
how all male goats were held in great reverence
by the Mendesians, and how in his time a woman
publicly copulated with a goat. However the
deity that was venerated at Egyptian Mendes
was actually a ram deity Banebdjed (literally
Ba of the lord of djed, and titled "the
Lord of Mendes"), who was the soul of
Osiris. Levi combined the images of the Tarot
of Marseilles Devil card and refigured the
ram Banebdjed as a he-goat, further imagined
by him as "copulator in Anep and inseminator
in the district of Mendes".
Two of the most notable satyrs of modern
America are the Pope Lick Goatman monster
of Kentucky and the creature called "Goatman"
which is usually associated with Maryland,
but this same label is sometimes applied to
sightings of satyr-like creatures from any
American state, regardless of how far away
from Maryland it is. Other creatures of interest
are the New Orleans Grunch, the Chevo Man
of California and the Marshall, Texas Goatman.
The southern "Goatman" is reported
as very sexually aggressive, especially towards
teenage lovers. It is often seen carrying
off bloody human body parts from accident
scenes, and its strange activities include
damaging cars and killing small helpless animals.
There are also unsubstantiated reports of
the Maryland and Louisiana Goatman known for
actually rape and killing male and female
The Pope Lick Monster is a half-man and half-goat
or half-sheep cryptid reported to live beneath
a Norfolk Southern Railway trestle over Pope
Lick Creek, in the Fisherville area of Louisville,
Numerous urban legends exist about the creature's
origins and the methods it employs to claim
its victims. According to some accounts, the
creature uses either hypnosis or voice mimicry
to lure trespassers onto the trestle to meet
their death before an oncoming train. Other
stories claim the monster jumps down from
the trestle onto the roofs of cars passing
beneath it. Yet other legends tell that it
attacks its victims with a blood-stained axe.
It has also been said that the very sight
of the creature is so unsettling that those
who see it while walking across the trestle
are driven to leap off.
Other legends explain the creature's origins,
including that it is a human goat hybrid,
and that it was a circus freak who vowed revenge
after being mistreated. In one version, the
creature escaped after a train derailed on
the trestle. Another version claims that the
monster is really the twisted reincarnated
form of a farmer who sacrificed goats in exchange
for Satanic powers.
The legends have turned the area into a site
for legend tripping. There have been a number
of deaths and accidents at the trestle since
its construction, despite the presence of
an 8 foot (2.4 m) fence to keep thrill-seekers
